Today’s Ottawa Senators stories,
- Washington comes to Ottawa, Sens seek a win after Caps’ sweep last season.
- Fisher making strides, results to follow.
- Road trip unites Sens.
- Nikulin saga ends with a trade.
Ottawa prospect Alexander Nikulin finally got his wish.
The Senators traded the disgruntled forward to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for defenceman Drew Fata.
The 23-year old Nikulin told the Senators last week that he will return to Russia if they didn’t have a deal in place by today.
Such promise, such high hopes for Alexander, but alas, it was for naught…
- Senators pounce late on Cats’ early lead, win 2-1.
- We’re happy, he’s happy: new deal means Alfie is here to stay.
- A sad tale of two player types.
Native of Northern California. Hockey fan since 1998... sort of... there's a hiatus in there that I still can't explain.
I want to know about anything and everything related to the sport and the spectacle. I watch, I react, I write it down.
My interest in the Sharks was initially a matter of geographic convenience and regional loyalty because that seemed to be how it worked. I had no prior interest (at all-- AT ALL) in professional sports of any kind. When I met hockey, it might have set off a chain reaction of general sports fandom. It hasn't, I don't think it will. At all.
Since then, that interest developed into full blown (mostly sort of usually almost completely) exclusive loyalty to the Sharks.
I started blogging a couple years ago on wordpress. I still occasionally put things there that I don't think fit here because they are not about the Sharks. Wherever my words wander, here on Kuklas Korner, they will (usually) hang on to a teal thread.
